Coming back in after a long weekend...

Well, I'm in favor of whatever will help us roll out a relatively stable version 2.x release which handles MIME.

I can live with #1 (although from the user/browser point of view is seems less efficient). I guess I was thinking along the lines of #2 when I sent the report last week. I have no objection to #3.

It seems like more work, but has the obvious advantage of being extensible. I wonder how many messages will actually be affected by this problem...
